Aspire Coronation Trust (ACT) Foundation announces Tuesday 14th and Wednesday 15th September, 2021, for the fifth edition of its annual flagship program Breakfast Dialogue; a convergence of various Public, Private and Social Sector leaders to have insightful conversations on global social issues with the aim of exploring solutions that will propel social transformation, and create impact in communities.
The theme of this year’s edition is “Reimagining the Future of Development: Learn, Adjust, Thrive!” as a clarion call on leaders across diverse platforms, locations and status quo, to strive to create improved solutions and navigate the new normal.
According to the CEO of the organization, Ms Osayi Alile, the conference will spur innovative strategies and encourage multisectoral collaboration across Africa that can alleviate some of the biggest societal problems such as poverty, inequality, and unemployment. This event will be a springboard for long-term strategies towards building more resilient and prosperous communities and institutions across Africa.
The event will feature industry experts and opinion leaders selected to cut across different works of life and share experiences and proffer solutions as well as participants who are equally raising their hands and saying yes to Africa’s social development!
While last year’s edition focused on how digital investments are key for transformative change and development of Africa as a continent with the theme Tech for Good, this year’s conversation centers around good governance and economic development in line with the Foundation’s mandate to continue fostering social change across all levels.
